About This Content

This Warband adds the Witch Hunters, with 7 new unit types and a fully playable campaign featuring unique Dramatis Personae, High Capitular Wilhelm Krieger.

Amidst the rivalries and violence that splits the Empire, sinister forces creep back into the lands of men. Against these evils stand the Witch Hunters, remorseless warriors in service to the Temple of Sigmar. The witch practicing her fell magic, the mutant spreading its corruption of flesh, the necromancer violating the sanctity of the grave, the daemon seeking to possess souls – these are the foes of the Witch Hunter. The Witch Hunters will allow nothing to make them waver in their defence of mankind against these evils. They are the Templars of Sigmar, and with sword and fire they will return their god’s justice to Mordheim.

Witch Hunter Captain

The leader of each band of Witch Hunters bears a commission from the Grand Theogonist himself, sanctioning whatever action the Captain deems necessary. Those entrusted with such authority are chosen for their unswerving faith and zeal, as well as their tactical acumen and swordsmanship. Any who dare oppose a Witch Hunter Captain will be summarily executed… with the Temple of Sigmar’s blessing.


Initial Weapon Set
  • Set 1: Crossbow Pistols
  • Set 2: Sword
Perks
Sigmar's Aegis: The warrior has a natural Magic resistance bonus of 20%.

Initial Skills
Hunter's Patience: After a successful Dodge attempt, reduces the cost of a Counter-Attack performed in response by 1 Offense Point.

Flagellant

Their minds unhinged by the conviction that the End Times are upon the Empire, Flagellants are fanatical madmen who wander the roads and byways of the provinces. They preach their apocalyptic visions wherever they go, scourging their own bodies with barbed whips and heavy chains in acts of ghastly self-mutilation. The crazed devotion that gives Flagellants purpose likewise makes them terrifying warriors in battle, hurling themselves upon foes in a frenzy of slashing flails. Many Flagellants have been swayed by the sermons of Witch Hunters, joining their warbands in a holy crusade to cleanse Mordheim and restore Sigmar’s grace to the land.

Initial Weapon Set
  • Set 1: Great Flail
  • Set 2: Nothing
Perks
No Talent: This unit cannot buy the ‘Lad’s got talent’ skill.

Initial Skills
Fanaticism: Grants immunity to All Alone, Fear and Terror tests.

Witch Hunter

The grim Witch Hunters are renowned for their determination and courage even as they are infamous for their pitiless methods and merciless justice. Typically, these men work alone, travelling the villages and towns to root out Chaos cults and witches, but the scope of corruption infesting Mordheim has drawn packs of Witch Hunters to it, banding them together under the authority of Witch Hunter Captains.

Initial Weapon Set
  • Set 1: Pistols
  • Set 2: Sword
Perks
Sigmar's Ward: The warrior has a natural Magic resistance bonus of 10%

Initial Skills
Purge the Heretic!: When dealing melee damage, increases melee damage by 20% for the next attack. The next action taken must be a melee attack or skill, or the effect is lost.

Zealots

Men who have suffered great losses, who had family and fortune taken from them, sometimes find that faith in Sigmar is all they have left. Casting aside the shambles of their old lives, they become Zealots - vengeful pilgrims on a quest to destroy the minions of Chaos wherever they can be found. Many Zealots were peasants or craftsmen, lacking the martial experience of mercenaries. They are, however, possessed by bitterness and rage. These are qualities that cause Witch Hunters to recruit them, harnessing their fanaticism to visit vengeance upon the evil infesting Mordheim.

Initial Weapon Set
  • Set 1: Spear & Sword
  • Set 2: Nothing
Perks
None

Initial Skills
Vengeance: When receiving damage, increases Melee damage by 10% for 1 turn. Stackable.

Warrior Priest

Among the ranks of Sigmar’s clergy, the Warrior Priests emphasize the martial aspects of their god. Filled with a fiery fervour and an unbreakable faith, these priests are a formidable sight to the enemies of the Empire. Wielding immense warhammers that can shatter skulls and crush bones, a Warrior Priest is an imposing foe. More than their physical strength, however, it is a Warrior Priest’s devotion to Sigmar that endows him with his deadliest abilities – harnessing the divine power of his god and unleashing devastating forces against his adversaries.


Initial Weapon Set
  • Set 1: Hammer & Shield
  • Set 2: Nothing

Templar Knight

The younger children of noble lords or the disposed heirs of conquered domains, Templar Knights often seek a position for themselves by offering service to the temples of mankind’s gods. Those who serve Sigmar usually end up in the warband of a Witch Hunter Captain, granted the chance to prove the sincerity of their faith by giving battle to the creatures of Chaos. Armed and armoured in finery befitting their noble birth, Templar Knights are nevertheless untested warriors and their lack of experience can make them overeager in combat.


Initial Weapon Set
  • Set 1: Sword & Shield
  • Set 2: Nothing
Perks
  • Last Stand: This unit will never disengage or flee from melee battle, it will fight until the end. The unit is also coolheaded.

Stoic: When engaged with 2 or more enemies, increases Melee Resistance by 10%. Not Stackable

Executioner

Few sights are more terrifying than that of seeing an Executioner approaching his victim. Selected for their massive physiques and utter remorselessness, these sinister warriors know neither pity nor mercy. Tasked to deliver final justice to the enemies of Sigmar, an Executioner becomes inured to killing, as ready to slay in cold blood as in the heat of battle. Great two-handed swords and double-headed axes are the weapons of choice for these killers, tools with which they become quite accomplished in the course of their gory trade.


Initial Weapon Set
  • Set 1: Great Axe
  • Set 2: Nothing
Perks
  • Fire Purge: Each melee attack has 25% chances to put the enemy on fire for 2 turns, the fire damage is taken at the beginning of its turn.
